Publication: BMC Medical Research Methodology Year: 2020 DOI: https://doi.org/10.1186/s12874-020-00986-0 Method: Online survey of an international pool of policy-makers, health agency directors, and researchers with extensive and direct experience of using visual analytics tools for complex mental healthcare systems planning.
